Fodor's Review

Chef Moshe Basson, repeated winner of international couscous contests, has mined the kitchens of older Jewish and Arab women to revive nearly forgotten recipes and ingredients. The appetizers are all tasty, but try the figs stuffed with chicken breast in a tamarind sauce, or the extraordinary stuffed mallow leaves (instead of the more conventional grape leaves). Two exquisite mains include traditional makhloubeh with chicken and rice, and the clay-baked lamb with okra. Vegetarians will also find plenty of options. Finish with unusual desserts and herbal tea. If you're in the mood, ask Basson to share some of his culinary lore.
